Poll Shows Californians Express More Concern About Global Warming

More Californians believe that global warming is a threat than their fellow Americans.

A new Field Poll says 7 in 10 Californians believe global warming is extremely or very important to them personally. That compares to 52 percent of respondents in a national poll taken in April.

The survey was taken from Aug. 10 to Oct. 28.

The Field Poll says 9 in 10 Californians believe the state could be a leader in new technologies to reduce climate change. They also think efforts to reduce global warming will create jobs and grow the economy.

The sample of 1,003 Californians has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. The survey was done by telephone in English and Spanish.
